Last night I was playing with a recently burned version of ubcd. It has been updated with the updater program and I added Partition Magic 8 and Acronis True Image. It boots fine from my cdrom (drive x) but it wont boot at all from my dvdrom (drive f). When its in the dvd - boot goes directly to the os (winxp). What's the difference???

Thanks

Does other bootable CDs work?

If so, it's probably the CD media, though I frequently have problems the other way round i.e. works on newer DVD drives, but not on older CDROM drives.

Not sure, but is DVD configured to boot first in CMOS?
